Factor goes BEYOND.  BEYOND speed, BEYOND aerodynamics, BEYOND expectations.  For the last 11 years, Factor has been dedicated to advancing what is considered bicycle state of the art. More than a measurement of grams or coefficient of drag, Factor Bicycles are engineered and manufactured to give the rider the ultimate cycling experience.

Designed and manufactured in our own facilities, each and every Factor, be it an O2, One or Slick is crafted to BEYOND exacting standards of fit, finish and performance.  The bike you buy is exactly the same as the bike as what the team rides.  Each frame is made as if its going to the World Tour and ridden by Romain himself.


Ultimately though what makes each and other Factor special is BEYOND explanation.  The only way to truly understand the essence of a Factor is to ride a Factor.

EKOI is a French cycling equipment and helmet brand created in 2001 that sells throughout the world via its website, translated into 10 languages.

In the space of a few short years, EKOI has become a leading brand in Europe and their helmet deal with the AG2R pro-cycle team has clearly been a contributing factor. The team gives the brand international visibility but also actively helps to develop innovative, high-performance products for its riders, and these innovations differentiate the brand from its competitors.

For the 2018 season, EKOI has designed no fewer than 4 new helmets to help the team perform at the very highest level, but also for our customers who can find these products on the EKOI site at affordable prices.

Indeed, the EKOI corsa evo helmet will be worn by the team for much of the coming season and will include the following models:

  • EKOI legend helmet: this is Romain BARDET’s preferred model with its vintage look and ultra-efficient ventilation (100% made in Italy).
  • EKOI toplight model: designed for mountain riding, and weighing in at only 170g in size S.
  • EKOI aero 2 model: designed in a wind tunnel for sprinters.
  • EKOI RB2 time-trail helmet: designed and tested in no-compromise wind tunnel testing, to eke out the best performance in individual or team time trials

The partnership with the AG2R LA MONDIALE pro-team is a real challenge that constantly elevates the brand’s standards and of course our partnership with this fantastic team over the last 5 years has been a source of great pride and recognition.
